Yep, they make black, red, silver, maybe other colors too, in 2000 degree. They make a clear coat 2000 degree too, I got my cans from walmart. I used the black n' clear coat on my Rancher header pipe and header heat shield. And silver 'n clear on my muffler and its heat shield. Directions are on the cans... ya gotta let 'em cure overnight after all the coats are on 'em, then heat the parts in an oven to 250 degrees for 30 minutes and allow them to cool for 30 minutes. Repeat that at 400 degrees. Finally repeat that heating/cooling cycle at 600 degrees. I was able to hang my parts from an oven rack placed at the top of the oven using wire through the bolt holes to keep parts from touching the oven interior. If ya don't hang 'em the finish will stick to the oven cause it melts (and self-levels a bit) when it gets hot. I put them on the bike today, but I haven't started the motor yet to see if they are gonna hold up to that intense header pipe heat. Last year I used 1200 degree paint with 2000 degree clear on them and the 1200 degree stuff boiled & bubbled right back off! LOL
I'll let ya know how it goes after I get enough pieces back on the bike to run it for a while.
